Lionsgate wants to do a Borderlands movie.

You can add Borderlands to the list of video game properties that will be turned into movies that you maybe will see, but really don't need.

Lionsgate announced Aug. 28 that they would develop the games series into a 'tentpole' movie, would means they probably have a few ideas for all the ways they want to fool with the loot-based first person shooter.

According to Variety:



"Part of our strategy in entering the game space under Peter Levin has been to source new brands with built-in audiences that will translate into great films and television shows," said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. "The 'Borderlands' games don't pull any punches, and we'll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise."

Friday's announcement comes less than three months before Lionsgate opens its fourth and final film in its highly successful "Hunger Games" franchise, which has grossed $2.3 billion at the worldwide box office. The studio's Summit label generated $3.3 billion from its five-film "Twilight Saga." And it has grossed more than $550 million from the first two films in its four-film "Divergent Series."


You can put this one up there with The Last of Us and Assassin's Creed as movies we're mildly interested in, but never asked for.
